It issues now as a solid theological book in which Dr. Bosley states the grounds for a Christian faith in terms of liberal . The mark of the pulpit is still upon it, however, and it makes of it a fine, readable, forceful presentation for the laity. Dealing first of all with the question: ""Why a creed?"", he proceeds to outline the basis for a modern's belief in God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Bible, the Church, Man, Forgiveness of Bin, the Kingdom of God, Salvation and Immortality. A good volume for the Lenten season for serious minded Protestants. The language is graphic and the argument easily grasped.
